@Haruyou:  I don’t know that this is normal, but if it makes you feel better, I’m in the same boat! We booked our ceremony and reception venues and are currently searching for a photographer. Talk about sticker shock! It keeps me up at night 🙁 Hopefully it will pass soon and we can get back to being excited!!

Yeah, I know the feeling. we are trying SO HARD to hold onto our budget. Thank goodness my fiance knows a lot of people and we were able, to use all resources available. My photographer is a professional who happens to be my fiance’s life long friend. My florist is a childhood friends mother, our DJ is another person he’s known for years.


I designed all wedding paper goods on wedding paper diva’s, and our venue is a country club so all food, drinks, wedding ceremony is COVERD. if not for all those hook ups and connections I’D BE A MESS!!!!

@Haruyou:  Normal…and fixable. Ground yourself with a solid template for budgeting and trust that you will make this work and it will be gorgeous and special. Let that be your mantra. Hugs!

@Haruyou:  You can do it. Make sure to plan a budget… what do you want to spend on your dress/ photography / bar / flowers etc. and stick to it. find out what your priorities are to help setting it up. Best of luck 🙂

@Haruyou:  So normal to feel stressed about the financial outlay! You’re planning a $10,000 party! My fiancé is the one who has been stressing a lot, and we make a lot of money between us and are taking a very cool-headed approach to our plans…keeping the fact that it is ONE DAY front and center whenever we start to think about adding in more details that, realistically, won’t make a big difference to the guests’ experience or ours. As you continue planning, see about buying any of your decorations etc secondhand. There seem to be a lot of brides who put up their DIY projects for sale after their wedding day. Not only would it save you money, but it would save you time (which equals more sanity saved too!).
